Monaghan Farm, an eco development north of Lanseria is one of South Africa’s newest communities combining country life with luxury living and a close proximity to the city, allowing homeowners to literally have it all.
All homes on the farm are tastefully designed to blend into the landscape, and it was one such beautiful home that Bonnie Wickham, Interior Designer at our Design Quarter showroom, used as a blank canvas to work her magic.
Working closely with the architect who had designed a very special family home with views from all rooms, Bonnie was commissioned to select and spec the main finishes including tiles, flooring and cornices. Next came the full furniture layout, kitchen specification and colours, bathroom layout and mood boards for all rooms.
Bonnie is delighted with the end result which was pulled together using selected art and décor items integrated with a number of Isabelina items including lamps, vases, ottomans, bespoke cushions, chandeliers and upholstered chairs.
Bonnie commented on the project: “The well thought out backbone of this home which I attribute to clever architecture, gave me a fantastic base from which to work. The natural light and beautiful views simply amplify the work we did on the interior. Whilst we have added touches of luxury we have maintained the natural and contemporary African farm style feel of the home, such an important aspect for the nature of this estate.”
The end result is a modern African home blending beautifully with understated French flair.
This home was featured on Top Billing on 19 November at 19h30 on SABC 3 featuring Bonnie explaining the interior design process.
